Seth Rogen called in to promote his new film, “Zack & Miri Make a Porno.”

Howard quipped that he was in almost every Hollywood movie these days and Seth laughed while joking, “I’m the new Samuel L. Jackson!”

Seth added that being open about his love of porn set a great precedent with his girlfriend, as she’s become used to porn companies sending him free videos all the time. “It’s not unusual to look at the coffee table and find a giant box of porno,” Seth told Howard.

Howard revealed he had about 20 adult DVDs stashed away in his vault – far too few for Seth. “It’s all about variety … I’ve got something like 5,000. I need a porn bunker,” Seth admitted. He also praised the internet as a porn repository, remarking that the web’s rise as the biggest porn distributor coincided perfectly with his adolescence.

Howard then asked Seth about the rumors he’s set to star in a “Ghostbusters 3” sequel. “I’d definitely read a ‘Ghostbusters 3’ script,” Seth said. “But it seems hard to imagine that it would be better than [even] ‘Ghostbusters 2.'”
